Okay, So this is going to be quite a long post and I am hoping for real answers with detail. I currently have one reptile, a Ball Python. I bought him August 31 at PetSmart. Right now he is living in a 20 G L tank which is more than adequate for his size right now, but I want to purchase today the 36 x 18 x 18 Large Exo Terra terrarium from my work for 30% off of 159.99! A great price! Right? I just bought one last week for 85.00 at my work and these tanks are normally 200.00. That one was for my friends X-mas present though. Anyway, I am planning on setting it up as a live plant terrarium. I know live plants are not always the best for snakes since they can maul the poor plant with their heavy bodies. That really isn't a concern of mine though. My concern is I want to set up a Rainforest Terrarium, my question is would this be a poor set up for a Ball Python because of the high humidity levels? I drew a diagram of my idea, but it will not allow me to upload it. So I will describe it as best as I can until I am able to edit this and upload one. I plan on purchasing the Exo Terra Large and Tall 36 x 18 x 18. Then placing a 2 inch layer of hydroballs or large aquarium stone along the bottom. This will create a water reserve, so the bedding wont be wet all the time. After that I will add a substrate divider, not sure of the actual name. This will keep the water reserve and the substrate separate so it will be dry. Then I will add a layer of eco earth or tree fern soil above the divider for my plants to be rooted in. For my Ball Python, I would then add a layer of ReptiBark or another form of snake safe substrate (not aspen). I would also then add moss to the ground along his hiding houses and climbing logs. Maybe even a water fall in the back of the tank for him to drink from so he will have running water. Besides that, I would like to place panels of tree fern along the backside using silicone and also silicone air plants or moss to fill up the rather large space. This would give it a finished look, I believe. I would use a monsoon system to keep the humidity constant in my tank, Since I currently use 100 W - 150 W night basking bulbs for my snake 24-7. I also would like to have a pvc? pipe in the tank large enough to stick a small syphon down to remove old water every now and then. I would of course use a cap on the top of it to keep it blocked off from him ever accessing. I would also use a 2.0 or 5.0 UVB lighting system for the plants, I think this would also create a decent day time and night time cycle for my Ball Python as he only has purple night basking bulbs on 24-7. Okay, So now that you know what my plans are, I would enjoy some feedback. I am not dead set on doing this, I just would really like a tropical vivarium in my bedroom and thought if I could add my snake to it to for the time being while he is still small. That would make it 100x better. If I can not add him to it, would this work for a tree boa?
